"A member of the public took video footage and tried to challenge them. One of the three boys was dressed in a black puffer coat and had the word ICON across his front.

"When approached, he pulled a black bandana with a white pattern on over his face.

"Another had a back top and grey shorts with a bag across his front. The third had on grey joggers and a black top.

"I have passed this information on to the police. If anyone is able to identify them, please do let me know or contact the police.

"They were overheard discussing breaking something whilst on our roof.

"Many thanks to the member of the public who was trying to help our school.

"It is such a shame that these boys felt the need to endanger themselves and to break the law by trespassing."
